Ep. 02: Words and Phrases to Bring Back
Say what?! We delve into the past to uncover and, hopefully, bring back some forgotten words and phrases we love!
Our wine for this episode: Humberto Canale Estate 2013 Pinot Noir from Patagonia, Argentina, and Line 39 2013 Petite Sirah from California
Our cheese for this episode: Asiago and Edam (EEE-damÂ or eh-DAM?)
Note: We apologize if our audio is a bit wonky during the podcast. Hopefully, we'll get a mixer soon to avoid this problem in the future.Â
James and Emily are determined to do away with the popularity ofÂ today's netspeak and creativity-lacking lexicon and, instead, bringÂ backÂ 1930s insults and compliments, swears that include far more than four letters,Â old-timey gangster slang, 1920s reporter jargon, and Prohibition era words for tying one on.
Somehow we even find a way to throw inÂ references toÂ "Community," "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic," "The Simpsons," "Parks & Recreation," and Boy George. And James gets to share hisÂ love for Meryl Streep.
Ep. 01: Wine & Cheese!
Â We kick off our adventure into the fancy and elite with two of our favorite things: wine and cheese!
Our wine for this episode:Â Robert Mondavi 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon (BIG Bottle!)
Our cheese for this episode:Â New York Aged White Cheddar
Wine and cheese, being a major component to our podcast, took center stage in this episode. We discussed how the pairing came to be, the science behind pairing wine and cheese, how to pair wine and cheese together, wine and cheese party etiquette, and we tipped our hats to the man who broke into Buckingham Palace and enjoyed wine and cheese with the queen (kinda, sorta).
